I've been lurking here in the hopes of learning more about the options before I take the plunge. I have nearsightedness as well as astigmatism, so contact lenses are no longer a great option. My vision has changed over the years with the distance between the near and far vision getting larger as the far vision drops. I've been wearing progressive lens glasses for about 20 years, and they did a great job of giving me a smooth transition between near, far and everywhere between. I'm now having trouble reading street signs soon enough to get in the turn lanes, and the latest glasses didn't meet my needs in that department.

I guess I'm getting closer to taking the risk of more aggressive treatments.

Obviously I can't answer any of your questions, but I'd like to thank you for giving me a look at more options than I knew were available.
